anything odd? why is the box so important to you? >> don't know. just is. >> slow down. >> i have no idea what i have got here. >> it says dybbuk. >> a word for demon. >> what does this thing with my daughter? >> mommy, who am i? >> once the box is opened, people die. >> i will trust him. beneath his wings, you will be protected. he will cover you. >> his truth. >> let my daughter go. >> i saw something in her. >> leave them wanting more. that's what happened. tavis: yeah, i think i've taken full possession of this film [laugh]. >> you don't even need to see it now. tavis: yeah. i was saying to kyra while the clip was running, is there anything left for you guys to want to go see? it is like i've seen the whole movie. speaking of which, this is the kind of thing i'm gonna tell her myself. i have to see this like in the middle of the day at like high noon. scary movies and i just don't -- >> you know, you're not alone -- tavis: we don't get along. i got to go at high noon, yeah. >> i've spoken to a lot of people who said, "oh, no, it is too scary. i get really scared." yeah, i used to get
through all of that? >> i don't know. certainly it was in retrospect. i wouldn't have done it any different. i was willing to risk it. i'm a woman of a certain age and i thought, well, gosh, i don't want to do it in such a way that i'll drop dead halfway through production and they'll recast. i won't get to do it, you know after all of this. that's one of the reasons i went to a nutritionist and tried to do it healthy. but i found out it doesn't matter, field. it doesn't matter if you eat tons of tons of brown rice and you're eating this enormous amount of calories. it's still fat and, if it was gonna clog in my heart or my brain or wherever, i was gonna be dead, no matter what. tavis: i could be totally off base here, so i'm just asking you. you disabuse me of the notion if i'm wrong about this, but how much of wanting to be in a project like this i don't care if your name is sally field or whoever else in this town. is there a gravitational pull even to want to be in a project like this when you know even before it's done you don't know if it's gonna work or not but you know t
." that was the sherman like statement you issued. >> that's, well, i'm not quite up to sherman's standards and i don't think i'm quite ready to lay waste to georgia either. but a good, good man i admire actually. >> but the grassroots campaign in your behalf, unofficial, was serious. i mean, over 235,000 people signed on. you broke their hearts. any regrets? >> no, because i probably have more influence than i, doing what i do now than i would if i were inside trying to, you know, do the court power games that come with any white house, even the best, which i don't think i'd be any good at. so no, this is fine. and what the president needs right now is he needs a hardnosed negotiator. and rumor has it that's what he's got, so. >> in jack lew? >> that's right. the president can't pass major new legislation. he can't formulate major new programs right now. what he has to do now is bargain down or ride over these crazy people in the republican party. and we what we need now is not deep thinking from the treasury secretary. if the president wants deep thinkers, he can call joe stiglitz, he can call othe
to lift that ceiling. the republicans don't. and it appears we're heading for another "thelma and louise" ride to the edge. remember -- they went over. we'll discuss that possibility next week with paul krugman, the nobel laureate in economics and "new york times" columnist whose bestselling book, "end this depression now!" calls for full employment as an alternative to austerity. read it, then send us the question you would like me to put to paul krugman. meanwhile, another reality beckons and there's a menace more threatening than the fiscal cliff ever was. what should really be scaring the daylights out of us -- the crisis which could make all the others irrelevant -- is global warming. get this one wrong and it's over -- not just for the usa, but for planet earth. that's the message delivered by hurricane sandy, and by almost all the extreme weather of the past two years. and here in the first month of the new year, it's the message from the most informed scientists in the world. they're scared, for real. and they say that unless we slow the release of global emissions from fossil fu
-view mirror, so what, what do you think? >> i don't know what i think. i, i, i, i hardly ever look at that. i don't know. gosh, i looked young in "smokey and the bandit." i forgot. tavis: but what's amazing about this is the range, the range your career has covered already. >> well, it's covered a lot of years. it's like almost 50. it will be 50 years that i've been doing this professionally in '14. so we're almost in '13, so i started in 1964. so it's been a diverse road of ups and downs and sideways. tavis: yeah. we've got two nights to talk about that diverse road -- >> oh, good. tavis: -- of ups and downs and sideways -- mostly ups, i think. but this latest role will add, without question, more talk to this career, because it is a memorable performance. her portrayal of mary todd lincoln in steven spielberg's "lincoln." the film, of course, also stars daniel day-lewis and tommy lee jones, and so here now, a scene from "lincoln." ♪ >> you think i am ignorant of what you are up to because you have not discussed it with me? when high -- when have i ever been so easily baffled? i believe yo
where things are unfolding to. you don't have to just kind of beat your head against the wall, which is what i kind of used to do. and also i think that there was more of a freedom in me too, so now i've experienced more like, i've experienced love to a new capacity and new depth, and i've also really stepped into my womanhood. so i think that the creation process was just more, like, open, and that's why i actually combined with so many different people, because i wanted to do things that i'd never done before. it was like i needed to do things i never did before, and that was just the feeling that i had from the beginning. tavis: i ran into aisha the other day, stevie wonder's daughter. >> aww. tavis: every time i see aisha we find ourselves in some conversation about how many people to this day still walk up to her when they discover that she's stevie's baby and that she's the one on the -- >> and be like, (singing) "isn't she lovely." tavis: you got it. [laughter] >> they go in. tavis: that's it. they go in when they hear that. so i'm wondering what you have now done to egypt. >>
, practically, whatsoever. >> i don't want to throw any water on that, but historically, budget estimates, aren't they sometimes looked at as just being kind of widely optimistic? >> well, they vary. some are more wildly optimistic than others. i think we'll know more about that. the legislative analyst's office is going to put out its overview of the governor's budget next week. i'll be delving into it more deeply in the weeks to come. what we don't have is a lot of the sort of smoke and mirrors tricks, accounting tricks that were used to balance budgets in past years. not so much under jerry brown, but in recent memory. i won't name me names. this seems to be a bona fide projection. now, there was some raising of the eyebrows yesterday because the lao, the legtiislative analyst's office projected we might have a $2 billion deficit that needed to be fixed. jerry brown's budget does not show that. mainly because he's repaying loans from other pots of state money that were used to balance the general fund more slowly than the analysts anticipated and he also anticipates collecting considerably m
should get a mortgage and don't. how do you know you've got this rule right? >> it's a great question, and one that we take very seriously. that's why we have done so much work in empirical research going in to finalize this rule, and why we'll continue to monitor the marketplace going forward. one of the things you want to see is whether or not the penetration of loans to credit-worthy people reaches levels we saw before the great run-up, but in normalized periods. and we're not to that place yet. mortgage levels are still tighter than really it should be. >> susie: that is one of the concerns that a lot of people have. there have been so many new rules and regulations put on banks and other lenders, and there are concerns it is going to make the credit market tighter, and more extensive, especially at a time when you need the economy to grow. what do you say to that? >> the reason why that credit market is tight is that the financial system suffered a massive credit-induced trauma not too many years ago. to make sure that the credit markets and the financial system work, we have to
in ten minutes or ten days or ten weeks. so you have the right to do it, but you don't have the ability to do it. >> reporter: the treasury uses a separate computer system to make interest payments on the federal debt so it is possible investors would get what they are owed. but what happens with social security, medicare and federal employee pay, is less clear. so secretary lew would have to make a decision. he could recommend the president continue business as usual-- ignoring the debt limit, borrowing money and paying the bills. as justification, lew could say the president had to choose between conflicting laws congress has passed requiring him to spend money and not spend it at the same time. >> at that point, i assume someone who would claim to be an injured party would bring suit and the federal government, if you can imagine this and the congress would find themselves before the supreme court arguing under what circumstances the debt of the united states should be paid or could be paid. it gets into really nasty stuff. >> reporter: but veterans of washington's budget battles say
because i don't think they may or may not understand what happens when the yield curve starts to steepen and interest rates start to rise. >> reporter: what happens, of course, is they lose money. maybe that would send at least some investors back into stocks. suzanne pratt, "n.b.r.," new york. >> susie: chuck hagel, the man president obama has nominated to lead the defense department, has called the pentagon bloated and warned the agency has not made important strategic decisions. his nomination comes as lawmakers have been looking at taking a trillion out of defense spending over the coming decade. but as darren gersh reports, hagel may be forced to cut a lot more than that. >> reporter: former senator chuck hagel is a vietnam vet, so when he accepted the president's nomination as secretary of defense, it was fitting his thoughts turned first to the troops. >> these are people who give so much to this nation everyday with such dignity and selflessness. >> reporter: but if he is confirmed, one of hagel's toughest jobs will be deciding how much to cut back the size of the military and th
of an anemic earnings season has yet to trouble the stock market. don't forget the s&p 500 hit a five-year high on friday. >> i think all of this has to do with anticipation. that things are expected to get better. that there is a muted v-shaped recovery anticipated for global g.d.p. and for u.s. corporate earnings. >> reporter: tomorrow, our earnings coverage continues when we interview alcoa chairman klaus kleinfeld. he'll detail how his business is likely to shape up in 2013. suzanne pratt, "n.b.r.," new york. >> tom: even with investor attention moving quickly from the fiscal cliff, now to corporate earnings, 2013 has gotten off to a very fast start. it's the best beginning to a year since 2010. chris hizy is the chief investment officer of u.s. trust. he joins us from that firm in new york. 2010, chris, you'll remember it, pretty good year, s&p 500 up 14%. dow anticipate similar returns this year? >> yeah, just almost to the exact number. we're expecting all-time highs probably sooner rather than later. i know we always use the year end as a way to put a line in the sand on a number. but w
is traditional banking remains under pressure. you have net interest margins that will compress. generally, i don't see anything that will produce upside in the coming quarters. >> susie: one area that has been resolved earlier this week, the settlement on that robo signing deal. so that is off the table so that these banks can now focus more on the future. >> right. >> susie: what kind of year do you think 2013 will be for the banks? do you think more positive or more negative? >> well, there's a mixed question there. if it's stock performance, i think we've seen most of the upside potential priced in. with wells down today slightly, even though it has a quarter of record earnings. i think what the market is telling us is even though wells's execution was probably perfect, they've already priced in any upside in the market, and won't have a lot of upside. i think the year for stocks will probably be average. when we get into smaller banks that have more potential to be tactical. more upside for the regional and spaurl banks, not as much for the large barngs. >> susie: talk about that. your firm
, don't you? look at this. you like this. >> it has an upside when you have daughters. she's a little annoyed by it. nah, we want to spend time together and see each other. tavis: speaking of navigating, how have you dealt with being the only male in that house? i have a friend of mine who has like three or four daughters and i tease him. i call him the ladies' man 'cause he tried four times and he could not produce a boy. so how do you do this every day? >> i always joke that i was raised in a testosterone house 'cause it was me and my brother and all-male cousins and my dad and everything. my poor mother. now i live in estrogen house. it's me and my wife and my two daughters and even two female dogs. so sensitivity has been beaten into me. i love it actually. you know, in a way, i've learned a lot through raising daughters. women are highly complex. again, i joke with them. i go, "you have all these feelings! there's just feelings everywhere!" you know, men are very simple and i'm a simple guy. i don't need much. you know, give me a football game on sunday or a baseball game during
